Found crawling on the sweater I was wearing. Very flat. I live a little south of Seattle, WA.
We regret to inform you that we agree that this is a Bed Bug. Hopefully, you found it while you were out and not at home. While we don’t want to make our readership paranoid to go out in public, we are hearing more and more that Bed Bugs are being found on furniture in libraries and on public transportation, services often used by folks with questionable grooming habits or who live transient lifestyles and subsequently transport their possessions everywhere they go.
Thank you. I did not find it in my home but am glad I know what to look for now!
